Informal Teen Dance (See? We’re Not Missing Out on the Social Stuff!)

Last night our teen homeschool group (one of several homeschool groups that we belong to) had their first informal dance. (There was a formal dance a few months ago…same group.) A Great Time Was Had By All.

This group is where Becca gets a lot of her social “interaction” these days. (After all, what more do teens want than hanging out with their peers?)

This particular teen group is a blended mix of several local homeschool groups. When we went to our first event (the first dance), I was surprised and pleased at how lovely the parents were (everybody made me feel so welcome) and the kids were sweet as well. They were all accepting of “newbies” and everybody was treated as an equal.

I am amazed at how many homeschool teens we have in this county. We’re all involved in different educational paths and “main” homeschool support groups, but in the end they’re all teens looking to get out and spend time with peers. I am so thankful for this, and so grateful that there are parents (and kids) out there, working hard to make this possible.
